When you say foothills are we talking Deadwood? or other?
Ahmen to all that.. I tried to add some grab bars for entry/exit from rear seats, There is nothing to bolt/screw to in the door jamb! NOTHING, plus if you overnight in the rear you need to leave the back window ajar and turn off your dome lights,so you can reach outside for the door handle to get out. That's just lame,I would love to sit in on a designers board meeting and find out how they come up with some of this stuff, Only I can't understand Japanese.!
ha ha.. funny. Another idea I just had, while not very techy. Very important in daily driving. This FJ is just like my girlfriend b itches about pretty much everything. Put it in reverse beeep, no seatbelt beeep, leave door open beeep, it's seriously extremely annoying. But like my g/f I still love her/it .
On the passenger side of my 2007 FJ Cruiser there is a gigantic subwoofer box attached. Why doesn't someone (like toyota) manufacture a storage box for the other side of my trunk compartment. It could fit in the same space that that subwoofer fits, but on the other side of the trunk compartment.
Ok I started this thread for ideas on the Techie side of the FJ. Stuff we can pass on(as to Toyota's guys ) that would be cool to have in the FJ. One thought I had is to have a electronic adjustable idle for use when runnning the winch or other accessories. Since no throttle cable, something bundled with the computer would be great.
So in that spirit, what other thoughts would be cool?
I have had my FJ for about a month now, and these are two of my biggest gripes. My previous vehicle was an 08 RAV4, and that underfloor compartment was wonderful. It is especially aggravating when you look at all that unused space under the cargo area.one thing that I would love to see added is some kind of storage cubicle under the floor in the trunk like the rav4. Never could understand they make a vehicle to do cross country wheeling but not even a place to store a towing chain or any tools. This would be a great improvement. Also agree radio button very annoying way to small
